True talent comes from playing multiple sports

Did you know 89% of the 2022 NFL Draft picks were multi-sport high school athletes?

That means the best high school football players are the ones who play OTHER sports too!

Playing multiple sports has multiple benefits: Learning different roles. Less burnout. More fun.

Plus, a variety of skills are developed that translate to football. For instance, if your student swims, plays basketball, or participates in track and field, they have developed skills that will help them immensely on the football field—from endurance to hand-eye coordination to footwork.

Bottom line: Better all-around athletes make better football players. So, encourage your student to play multiple sports, including high school football!

Talk to your high school’s athletic director or football coach about how your student can sign up to play.

Why do we love high school football? Because there’s so much to celebrate about it:

Where do you find players from many different backgrounds ALL working together towards a common goal?

In honor of National High School Colors Day, let’s celebrate high school football and the teams that made us!
